Great coffee bottomless cup! Very nicely presented food in a country atmosphere. Service with a genuine smile. Nice folks. Makes you feel good to support such a business. Gluten free options are happily accommodated and on the menu. Clean washroom!

Food is delicious and staff is always so pleasant! The portions are often enough for 2 servings so get a couple lunch entrées and share.

Great breakfast spot! Traditional breakfast with a Mexican twist. It had a casual comfortable vibe. Had the huevos rancheros and home fries and it was delicious. Good burritos, pancakes and plenty of other options. Reasonably priced with friendly staff great homemade hot sauce!
